Railways in the Nort East in the 1960s. A nostalgic collection of photographs looking back to the end of this era in the North East, capturing in pictures everything from glamorous expresses to heavy freight and shunting operations. The book spans Sunderland and Hartlepool as well as Darlington in the 1960s.
Operating a railway day in, day out with steam traction was never easy and the fells of north-west England had fearsome gradients - 1,370 feet high Stainmore summit, the 15-mile slog of the 'Long Drag' from Settle Junction and the tortuous climb from Oxenholme to Grayrigg were huge challenges to enginemen. Perhaps the best-known ascent was that up to Shap summit where the constant procession of heavy goods trains required assistance and a railway community was established around the station and shed at Tebay where banking locomotives were available around the clock. Using some of the finest action photographs available, this album vividly brings to life the great age of steam in the fells.
